|I was rather hoping ....

in consequence of the missive, End of Chapter 52 - SUPERB example of English Literature, penned by Cathy Allen
...that Wickham would come to a sticky end, not so drastic perhaps as being shot by some young girl's irate father for indiscretions, but publicly shamed or even a term in prison. Now he marries the feather-brained Lydia and becomes family to the Bennets. Insufferable, insupportable..
At the very least I thinks he should have been slapped across the jowls by a large wet trout and dumped into a lake, the trout preferably wielded by Darcy, who then orders him from the county on pain of revealing his whereabouts to every merchant in the area he owes money to. Wickham leaves and is last heard of heading for Argentina where he will eventually own a corned-beef factory and invent the tango.
But no, perhaps J.A's way is better in the long run. I can but dream. (-:
